Biophilia and Wellbeing
Show #193 - Date: 17 Feb 2019

Amy Trotter has brought together a personal love for nature and the great outdoors with her nursing background, and is expert in the growing understanding of the ways our relationship with nature affects our psychological, physical and emotional wellbeing. Biophilia is a term first popularised in the 1980’s and describes the connections that human beings subconsciously seek with the rest of life. It suggests that the deep affiliations humans have with other life forms and nature as a whole are rooted in our biology. This leads to the conclusions – which are increasingly borne out by science – that we benefit from immersion in nature and conversely that we suffer from being deprived of contact with it.
